Lehigh Valley 60000-60499 Box Cars

Layout Tour

I'm finishing up a Sunshine model of a LV 60000-60499 series wood sided boxcar. Besides the ACF builder's photo which was in the kit, there is a photo in Bob Archer's book Lehigh Valley Railroad of one of the cars around 1937. Their as-built lettering was unique in that LEHIGH VALLEY was painted over the left side of the car, versus the right on most box cars. Does anyone have or know of a photo of one of them in the later 1940-1950's lettering scheme? I do not believe they were lettered the same as the better known cars with the left side opening doors.
